Last call is next week for fifth grade students to audition for seats in the Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA) program at Ellis Arts Academy for the 2007-2008 school year. The school will conduct auditions in music, dance, drama and art from 4 to 7 p.m., Jan. 18, at Ellis, 222 S. Central Ave., Rockford.
Parents should arrive by 3:45 p.m. to complete information packets. For instructions about how to prepare for auditions in each of the four disciplines, parents and students can visit rps205.com or contact Julie Hindenburg at 490-4752. CAPA faculty also will hold an informational meeting at 5:30 p.m., Jan. 11, at Ellis to discuss audition requirements, including portfolio submissions for visual art students and memorized literature readings for drama students.
CAPA serves students in sixth through eighth grades, many of whom go on to attend CAPA at Auburn High School.
